get. the other thing that i use is two things that -- one of ours that we use in phoenix -- and again, this is one of the main reasons why people come to us is that gaolgraffiti hotline. our graffiti hotline program is almost like a silent witness. many are designed first to school age kids. any time we get grab eat aloe on the school we would take pictures up and put up a reward poster. we got a phoenix community alliance that has business members tire of graffiti that put money into this program. and we use it to reward people for calling others in on graffiti, up to $250. the point system, we go to a board once a month and talk about the different cases that we get and we reward these people up to $250. huge, great program in phoenix right now. lots -- and we don't just do it for conviction. you know what silent witness says? you can receive up to a thousand dollars upon conviction, not with the graffiti reward program. the graffiti hotline program, it's just minimum id of the tager because once we id them, we'll go and get them. sooner or later. the big thing that we do use, thoug

and elsewhere, though their rates of nonviolent crime and drug use are not that much different than ours. so if another country were to lock up its own people at the rate that we do, and if our rates of incarceration were more normative to the rest of the world, we would regard with that other country was doing as a massive violation of human rights. that's the way we would look at it. now, the other point here is what we're doing is not even consistent with american history. i mean, we had 500,000 people behind bars in 1980 and now we have 2.3 million, 2.4 million people behind bars and almost have 5,000 people behind bars just for a drug violation. there are as many people behind bars for a drug violation than we had for everything in 1980. it's not consistent with global standards and not consistent with our own history. it's costing a vast amount of money and i think what you see is for some of the d.a.'s and others are beginning to say enough is enough. we're seeing prison populations beginning to decline but when it comes down to the question, who are the first people we shoul

>> thanks for being with us. a live edition of hannity is next. meantime, go to gretawired.com. good night. >>> this is a fox news alert. tonight, despite the tough rhetoric from the whourks president obama has still not announced a decision about what, if any, military action he's going to take against the syrian regime. i'm tucker in for sean. earlier today, the administration released part of an intelligence report and moments later, the president had this to say. >> as you've seen, today, we've released our unclassified assessment detailing with high confidence that the syrian regime carried out a chemical weapon that killed well over 1,000 people, including hundreds of children. this kind of attack threatens our national security interests by violating well established international laws against the use of chemical weapons by further threatening friends and allies of ours in the region like israel and turkey and jordan. and it increases the risk that chemical weapons will be used in the future and fall into the hands of terrorists who might use them against us. so, i have

home for staying with us for the next hour. there is a lot going on in the news today. >>> we're going to start here in new york city where the united nations has today called an emergency session to convene the security council of the u.n. on an emergency basis late today to respond to what looks like it may have been the largest chemical weapons attack in the world since saddam hussein gassed his own people back in 1988. and looks like is the key phrase here. it's hard to prove. it is hard to tell conclusively when chemical weapons have been used especially if you are trying to tell from a distance. in that iraq case it took four years for experts to confirm that chemical weapons were, in fact, used then. physicians for human rights is one of the first groups to get into the site. they collected soil samples and tested them. the soil samples did show trace evidence of the elements that sarin gas breaks down into over time. and with those soil samples they were able to conclude that saddam hussein had used sarin and also mustard gas, like from world war i, mustard gas, on the ku
